Their answer, all three and Hubby too - my macaroni cheese and bacon.
1.5 l of freshly boiled water.
5mls of salt and in the microwave for 12 minutes on full power.
Some crushed garlic and sliced spring onion.
Ordinary onion works as well too.
Microwave white sauce:
500 mls of milk
60 mls of cake flour
1 lump of butter
Also on cooked full power for 2 minutes at a time - around 7 mins in total, whisking every 2 minutes.
Whisk every 2 minutes.
(Add 1/2 cup of grated cheese - to taste)
I even add some of Ina Paarman's Italian cheese spice if I have no cheese.
If we had guests I would put this amount in a large flat rectangular dish and cover with more cheese, a sprinkling of paprika and bake/grill in the oven for a while.
I head of cauliflower, chopped bacon, spring onions, peppadews, a little cheese sauce and a dollop of ham flavoured cream cheese.
It was VERY good.
